Vivaldi 2.0 Desktop Browser Featuring Expanded Customization, Sync Across Devices and Privacy Tools Released

Recommended Posts

Maverick developer Vivaldi today released version 2.0 of its browser as the company continues its quest to target users who crave a feature-backed web surfing tool that also offers greater privacy options.

 

Vivaldi was founded by Jon von Tetzchner, a former CEO of Opera who oversaw that company’s browser development for years. Since leaving several years ago, he has seen leaner, simpler browsers leaving behind a larger group of users who wanted more.

 

That led to the launch of Vivaldi 1.0 in 2016. The first version offered features such as tab stacks to help manage large numbers of open tabs, the ability to view multiple pages at the same time using tiles, notes to let users save excerpts of pages, and web panels that could be viewed via a sidebar.

 

Since then, Vivaldi has been downloaded more than 1 million times. Yes, it’s puny compared to the more than 1 billion users Google’s Chrome browser boasts. But in some ways, that’s point: finding a narrower focus that’s better for a core group of users.

 

“What we’re gradually doing is polishing the browser,” von Tetzchner said. “We’re aiming for a richness in the browser that you don’t find anywhere else.”
